    Manuel and Josiah were great. They were the first service providers I felt totally confident in. They were knowledgeable, very curious, and clean. They covered all floor and carpeted steps. It wasn't a rushed job. They were very thorough, and the finished work was excellent. If all your employees are like them, I now understand why your company is so highly rated. I am so glad I choose OBA. I have another job I need done, and when I am ready, there's no need to look at another company. I will call you, OBA. If I know of anyone needing basement help, I will highly recommend OBA. Thanks, OBA, for your service. Last but not least, they were early, they also called ahead with an eta, they finished within the estimated time, and the price was also affordable.

The crew was on time, and even gave a courtesy call with a time frame they would be arriving. Manuel and Justin were outstanding and very professional. The cleanup they did was great, and they left no mess. I would recommend Ohio Basement Authority for all your waterproofing needs. From the office staff, representative, and the installation crew, everyone was very professional and helpful in answering all questions or concerns.

              My real estate team has you listed on our website as a repair source, and I am familiar with your work through my office. I also chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the professionalism and pricing. Everyone in the office has been great, and Travis Burkart did an excellent job of explaining what needed to be done and how. He was very professional and knowledgeable. The crew arrived as stated and did the work according to schedule. Manuel and his crew were very pleasant and easy to have in our home. They are very well-trained to do the job. It was a dust producing job, and they were very thoughtful in trying to contain it. They asked us to turn off our furnace for part of the process, and they did a wonderful job cleaning up. I always refer you to my sellers. Thanks!

    Customer Testimonial

              Your office staff was courteous, helpful and friendly. The inspector I met with also was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. He exceeded expectations in his service. I’ve seen Ohio Basement Authority’s TV commercials, and I chose to work with the company because of the professionalism and helpfulness of Drew, my inspector. Also because one of your competitors has a less than stellar reputation. Manuel, Sergio and Francisco with the installation crew were hard-working and professional in their work. They also were very courteous, and their clean-up met my expectations.

    Customer Testimonial

              We originally chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of a referral from a friend. We used OBA a year ago for other basement work, and we used them the second time because we liked the work, service, and staff/workmen. The representative and his presentation was good. We didn’t need as much presentation the second time as we knew what work needed to be done. We had great phone service and a really good crew of men on the job here. Milton and his colleague were very thorough, friendly, hard workers. They knew what they were doing, cleaned up afterward, and provided high quality customer care. A manager, Manuel, came at the end of the first day and then finished up the closing of the trench after the inspector on the second day. He also was very thorough, did a great job on cementing the closure, had a good rapport with us, and was very patient when I expressed my concerns about the day and referred me to a company rep. We had two delays at the city inspector was not able to come. But the company was very apologetic, able to accommodate us, and reduced our final bill appropriately for the inconvenience.

              I chose to work with Ohio Basement Authority because of the price and a referral from a friend who used your company. Travis was very clear and answered all my questions. And Manuel and his crew were great! The conditions weren’t the best. We had a rainy day, but the crew did a great job of cleaning up. Given the conditions, they did a fine job. The overall performance of the installation crew was excellent. They are a great team and they worked very efficiently. I’m glad I had them here.

              I looked on Angie's List and that's how I decided to call. We didn't really look anywhere else. Jeff was great and did a good job presenting a plan of action. I was asking a lot of questions and his answers were great. Just one guy came for the installation, Manuel. Manuel was super courteous and thorough. He was a very hard worker from what I could tell. For the most part, it was very clean after he worked.

    Customer Testimonial

              Hello, I am very pleased to follow up with you regarding my experience with the work that was completed for me by Ohio Basement Authority on April 4-5, 2017. My property needed to have all of the existing storm drainage lines replaced, from the downspouts to the street. This project involved a substantial amount of excavation for the installation of several new lines. The OBA crew involved Manuel and other members. Each of these good folks did an excellent job! They arrived on time, were very expert at their job and very polite and courteous! Their work and clean up was very neat, with all of the excavation covered by the existing soil and sod. In short, Manuel and the crew members are professionals that represented your company in a very positive way. I look forward to doing additional business with Ohio Basement Authority, and will recommend your company to others. With best regards, Thomas L. F.

    Customer Testimonial

              This was one of the things that stood out most: a human answered the phone every time and was helpful and informative. Your people called before arriving and showed up on time. The presentation was very educational and informative, and your rep called before arriving and clarified all questions/handled follow-up communication in a timely manner. Manuel and Jeremiah were wonderful. They arrived exactly on time – at 8 a.m. on a Monday morning – communicated effectively about where they were in the scope of the work, and finished on time. Their cleanup was more than satisfactory. Everything looks excellent and they also hauled away some extra paint we had in our basement for us when we asked. Manuel and Jeremiah were hardworking and talented, and did high quality work that provided me with peace of mind that our basement is now repaired and protected from future storms. Thank you.

  • Ensuring a Home's Health, Value with CleanSpace Encapsulation in Westerville, OH
    Before
    Ensuring a Home's Health, Value with CleanSpace Encapsulation in Westerville, OH
    After

    They moved into their house not long after it was built almost 40 years ago, but homeowners in Westerville, OH, were ready to put their home on the market. Before doing so, the owners knew they must complete various home improvement projects. This included addressing the partial crawl space just off of the basement.

    Even though the owners had some boxed items stored in this space, it certainly was not an ideal storage area. Along with debris strewn about the crawl space, this area also featured plastic liner that failed to cover the dirt floor and nasty insulation that was falling victim to mold and moisture. The homeowners worried these conditions would not only affect the health of the home, but their ability to sell it as well.

    After learning more about Ohio Basement Authority through our website, the homeowners were eager to contact us for assistance in transforming the problematic crawl space. They met with Inspector Jacob Thomas who recommended the perfect solution.

    One of our crews, led by Foreman Manuel Inguil, first removed the debris and other nuisances from the crawl space. Then, they encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace liner. The thick and durable CleanSpace liner fully seals the crawl space from the earth. It also prevents vapor and moisture intrusion, and it helps insulate the crawl space. CleanSpace is tough enough to crawl on, and it helps create a healthy storage area. Its durability is further enhanced by the thick drainage matting that was placed on the floor before the encapsulation process.

    The homeowners are glad the crawl space, as well as the rest of the home, will now be healthy for the next owners because of this reliable repair solution.

  • Sealing a Nasty Crawl Space Improves a Home's Health in Dublin, OH
    Before
    Sealing a Nasty Crawl Space Improves a Home's Health in Dublin, OH
    After

    After working with Ohio Basement Authority on several of his other rental properties, a homeowner was eager to contact us again when he noticed health issues with a house he owns in Dublin, OH. The owner noticed the crawl space was full of debris and failing insulation and floor matting. These conditions can greatly affect the health of the rest of the home, and the owner wanted to make sure it would be an ideal living environment for his future tenants.

    After contacting us and consulting with the same trusted inspector, Victor Golowin, the owner was eager for us to transform the nasty crawl space. After the debris and older insulation was removed, one of our experienced repair crews, led by Foreman Manuel Inguil, encapsulated the crawl space in CleanSpace liner.

    Similar to swimming pool liner, CleanSpace is thick and durable. It completely isolates the crawl space from the earth, acts as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space. It is tough enough to crawl on, and its durability is further enhanced by thick drainage matting that was placed on the floor before the encapsulation process. This makes the crawl space an ideal area for storage.

    The owner was happy to call on Ohio Basement Authority again, and he is pleased with the outcome of the repair project.

  • Waterproofing a Flooding Crawl Space in Bloomingburg, OH
    Before
    Waterproofing a Flooding Crawl Space in Bloomingburg, OH
    After

    Not long after moving into their house, homeowners in Bloomingburg, OH, wanted to complete various repair projects around the home. Even though they never went into the crawl space, they wondered if this area under the house was affecting the health of the rest of the home.

    After seeing Ohio Basement Authority’s TV ads, they contacted us to see how we could help them. One of our inspectors assessed the condition of the crawl space and recommended some of our trustworthy repairs.

    The day our crew arrived to install these reliable solutions in the nasty crawl space, they found the area had flooded with water from heavy rains. The crew first pumped the water out of the crawl space and then began to waterproof it with the SmartPipe drainage system and SmartSump sump pump. If any water seeps inside the crawl space, the SmartPipe system will catch it and direct it to the SmartSump. From there the water is pumped out of the crawl space and away from the home.

    The crawl space also was encapsulated in CleanSpace liner. This thick and durable liner completely seals the crawl space from the earth. It also serves as a moisture and vapor barrier, and helps insulate the crawl space.

    Additional installations included an IceGuard on the exterior sump pump discharge line, and the Turtl access well that replaced the leaking window.

    The homeowners can rest easier knowing these reliable solutions have improved the health of the crawl space and their home.

  • Fixing and Repairing a Cracking, Tilting Wall in Marysville, OH
    Before
    Fixing and Repairing a Cracking, Tilting Wall in Marysville, OH
    After

    Homeowners in Marysville, OH, have lived in their house since it was built 30 years ago. During the last few years, the owners have noticed potential structural issues getting worse. One section of a foundation wall was cracking and appeared to be tilting inward.

    Along with the safety and structural integrity of their living environment, the owners were concerned these problems could impact their ability to sell the home some day. They wanted to fix these issues once and for all, so they started to research how to best address these problems. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our TV ads, and they were eager to meet with one of our inspectors to learn more about how we could help them.

    As he used a laser level and his keen, experienced eye, Inspector Travis Burkart pointed out that the north wall was showing signs of settlement and tipping. He then presented the homeowners with several repair options that would stabilize the wall and prevent any further damage.

    The owners were then eager for Foreman Manuel Inguil to lead his crew in installing several PowerBrace beams. These steel beams are fastened and secured to the floor joists. The beams are then plumbed against the wall as level as possible, and the bottom of the beams are anchored to the floor. These heavy-duty beams are zinc-plated beams so they are protected from corrosion and damage, unlike the other metal and wooden supports that were failing to stabilize the walls. Another unique feature with this system is the ability to tighten the beams during dry seasons to potentially improve and straighten the wall over time.

    The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this reliable repair solution has helped ensure their home’s structural stability for many years to come.
